A big question I get asked all the time is how I get my face makeup looking flawless. I always say that a great skincare routine and a solid foundation application are the perfect combo to that flawless look. Here are the following steps that I use to apply my foundation:
🔹Moisturizer! I always apply a moisturizer before I start doing anything. I let it set in my face for 10 minutes.
🔹Primer! I always use two primers when I do my face. I will always put down a pore filling first. Then my second primer will either be a lotion base or a spray and let it sit for 5 minutes.
🔹Foundation! My holy grail foundation is the It Cosmetics CC Cream because I don't have to color correct. Any other foundation I use a green color corrector. I always bring my foundation down my neck.
🔹Concealer! My concealer differs depending on what foundation I use. Some concealers don't play well with some foundations.
🔹Contour! I use just a little of my Nyx Wonder Stick to apply a slight contour on my face.
🔹Set! I do not do the whole "baking" thing. But I do set my face with a setting powder. My go to setting powder is the Emani Bamboo HD Setting powder. Before that I would use a loose foundation powder. AND I AM DONE!
Those are the steps that I take when I lay down the base of makeup. No filters or Photoshop is needed. As long as you have a great canvas (and you already do) and the right tools, you can get the same results and not depend on a bunch of editing. Hope you enjoy!
